During our trip to India during the Summer of 2019, we saw a bunch of familiar American fast food restaurants. We dined at McDonald’s a handful of times and KFC once (it was extremely spicy).
When purchasing drinks and snacks, we did so from shops which weren’t exactly what I’d consider to be stores.
Kim and I did read about a convenience store which sounded a lot like 7-Eleven. The store has the very creative name, 24Seven! Continue reading Review: Forget 7-Eleven, We Visited 24Seven in India!
During the summer of 2019, the Michael W Travels family went on a four-week trip around South Asia, visiting five countries.
During our travels, we love stopping into McDonald’s to see what local/ unique menu items might be available. It’s also something our kids look forward to!
The last country we visited during our trip was India. I was definitely curious to see what was being offered at McDonald’s India! Continue reading Find Out What We Tried During A Visit To McDonald’s India
Over the summer of 2019, the Michael W Travels family spent four weeks traveling around South Asia.
In total, we visited five countries, spending the most time doing a road trip around Sri Lanka.
During our visit, we saw lots of wildlife including elephants, peacocks, monkeys, mongeese and more. While driving back towards the capital Colombo (during our last day), we made a stop at the Sea Turtle Research Project in Bentota for another animal experience.

Over the summer of 2019, the Michael W Travels family went on a four week trip around South Asia. During this time, we visited five countries.
While doing research for the trip, I decided that this would be the perfect time for a quick visit to Bangladesh, a country none of us had ever visited before.
Here is what we did while spending 48 Hours in Bangladesh. Continue reading 48 Hours In Bangladesh With Kids!
During summer 2019, the Michael W Travels family spent four weeks traveling around South Asia. During the trip we visited five countries in the region.
When visiting a new country, we make it a point to stop at McDonald’s. The primary reason is to see what local/ unique menu items are available. It’s also a treat for our two kids!
While visiting Sri Lanka, we ended up dining at McDonald’s as our final meal. We stopped into a location in the country’s capital, Colombo. Continue reading Find Out What We Tried At McDonald’s In Sri Lanka
Back in August, the Michael W Travels family went on a four week trip to South Asia, visiting five countries along the way.
The third country we visited was Nepal. This was a very special visit as this was my 100th country visited! (For those curious about what list I follow, I go by the list of UN Member States which includes 193 countries.)
For the first night of our time in Nepal, we stayed at the Hyatt Regency Kathmandu. Continue reading Find Out What Hyatt Did To Help Me Celebrate My 100th Country Visited!
In the summer of 2019 the Michael W Travels family went on a month-long trip around South Asia.
During the trip we visited five new countries- Maldives, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh and India.
While planning the trip, Kim and I knew that our visit to the Maldives wouldn’t be the classic experience. (Most people think of the Maldives and picture overwater bungalows and luxury.) Continue reading Our Budget Friendly Trip To The Maldives With Kids
I recently wrote about a traditional hat that I bought in Nepal during our trip to South Asia.
In the post I mentioned how we got much better at minimizing the amount of souvenirs we buy on trips now.
Nepal is the one country in recent years where we actually wanted to buy a few things. As we wandered around the streets of Thamel and by various sites, I noticed many shops selling beautifully painted masks. Continue reading Searching For A Traditional Mask In Nepal
During our month-long trip around South Asia we visited five countries. The last stop on our trip was to India where we visited a bunch of different areas.
We booked a flight with AirAsia (through CheapOair) to get us from Delhi to Goa.
For those who don’t know, traffic in Delhi is beyond awful. Our flight was at 7:55 pm and we hoped to arrive at the airport two hours early. However, the ride to the airport took a lot longer than expected due to that fun Delhi traffic. Continue reading CheapOair Screws Up Our Flight Booking, Makes Good
Over the years I’ve gotten much better at minimizing the amount of souvenirs (junk) that I purchase while traveling.
I remember coming home from Thailand (about 10 years ago) with an extra bag filled to the brim. Now it seems like many countries sell the same kind of this. Most of the time, if I am buying something it is for my boys.
However, there are a few items that I still like to purchase when visiting new places and one of them is traditional hats. (Click the link to find out about some of my other hat purchases from around the globe.) Continue reading Searching For A Dhaka Topi Traditional Hat In Nepal
